Date & Walnut Swirl Cookies

These cookies crumbly and tender, filled with a spiced date filling with walnut pieces swirled inside.

date filling

1/2 c date paste (150g)

1/4 c chopped walnuts

1/2 c water

1/2 orange zest

1/4 tsp cardamom

1 tsp cinnamon

2 pinches of nutmeg

pinch of salt


1 c oat flour

1/2 c brown rice flour

1 medium egg

2 tbsp honey

1/3 c ghee, room temp

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the date filling, add all the ingredients to a small saucepan and simmer on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until darker in colour and thick like a paste. Take off heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the ghee, honey, vanilla and egg for a couple minutes, then sift in the dry ingredients and fold until combined into a dough. Place in the fridge to firm up for 30 minutes.

Take the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and roll into a rectangle and spread the date spread evenly on top. Use the parchment paper to help and roll from the long side of the dough until a long log. Transfer to the fridge again for another hour.

Preheat oven to 200°C/ 390°F (180°C fan) and line a couple baking trays with parchment paper.

slice the dough into 1/2 inch thick slices and place on the baking tray.

Place the tray in the middle of the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden around the edges. Allow to cool completely in the tray and enjoy!
